I’d like to announce a project that I have been working on over the past couple of months: Dailymugshot.com. I designed the site and all interface widgets for Keith Gould, the owner and mind behind the site. Dailymugshot is a site, inspired by YouTube videos, where people took a picture of themselves every day for years. The result is this phenomenal video where you can see people aging, changing, going through different fads, etc. It’s really pretty cool.
The videos seem great, but would take tremendous dedication to keep it up – you might think that this seems a pretty daunting task. I personally don’t have the ambition to take my picture every day, line them up, animate them and create a movie out of them. The cool thing is that Dailymugshot takes all of the hard work out of it for you, even reminders – thats right, they have a reminder application for both win and macs, so you don’t have to remember to take your mugshot.
I think that this very sweet web application is gonna take off. I think it is creative, fun and becomes what you make of it. You want to wear a different outfit each day – cool. Are you losing weight and want to see how much your face/body thins out over 2 months? Great. Do you want to show your friends on MySpace what you look like every day? Use Dailymugshot.
Mad props go out to Keith for building this and having the ambition to do it. He has worked long, hard and late hours to pull this project off. If you think its cool, I’m sure he’d love a shout out to keep him going.
P.S. The site just went live and the cutest boy in the world in the picture above is my son, Jameson.
